The 2011 Best of WNC reader’s poll was a carnival of the food, drinks, arts, retail outlets, services and all the other elements that make WNC a great place to live and work. But the best is not truly the best until we celebrate them in full array.
It’s Xpress’ 4th annual Best of WNC Bash! Friday, Dec. 2, 8 p.m. at The Orange Peel.
The amazing Kipper Schauer (winner of Best DJ and Best Local Trivia Night) will serve as ringleader for the dizzying spectacle of events, which includes:
• The rambunctious and radical Mad Tea Party! (Winners of new category, best fraggle-pop band.)
• The exotic and enchanting Sirius.B! (Winners of next big thing and rock band categories)
• The wild and wooly Runaway Circus!
Kipper himself will send things spinning with a DJ set to close the evening. What’s more, we’ll have snacks provided by some of WNC’s best establishments! It all happens at WNC’s Best Place to Hear Live Music — The Orange Peel! This is a benefit for Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, MANNA Foodbank, ASAP, and Riverlink.
Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door.
Doors at 7:30 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m.
Please note: This is a later (post-dinner) start time than in past years and will not include the same food offerings. Circus-themed treats like pop corn, pretzels and ice cream will be on hand.
